the complete room by marcio kogan

This Brazilian home by architect Marcio Kogan is truly a masterpiece, with its wonderful mix of natural materials and simple finishes and an understated open plan elegance that appears to welcome with open arms and open panels. The property even features 3x 100 year + mango trees.
The living/dining and outdoor entertaining areas format as one room...the complete room for mine.

The Met...Bangkok

Climate-controlled high-rises make sense when changing seasons bring extreme temperature shifts, but in Bangkok, year round hot and humid days blend into similarly sultry nights.

Called by principal WOHA architect, Mun Summ Wong as a 'vertical community' this building takes great design advantage of cross-ventilation between towers, connected by bridges that double as airborne gardens and terraces. Make sure you take the time to view all the works of WOHA Designs. Something quite different...
